The Radicals - The Genuine Kind

It's funny. 

Our culture rewards the loud, bold, audacious, outrageous. Those who push themselves to the front. Those who love to talk and to primp in front of mirrors. We reward the loudmouth, the blowhard. We applaud the big gestures, the dazzling, the overwhelming.

Turns out the counter-cultural choice is to be simple, small, meek. To be clear-headed, clear-eyed. The "radicals" are those people who tend to silence, contemplation, humility, grace. Those who practice genuine kindness. Those who don't always yammer away. Those who do less, buy less, live lightly on the land.
